Vte-0.16.1 is available for download at:


Vte is GNOME 2's virtual-terminal emulation widget.

This is the stable release targeted for GNOME 2.18.1.

Changes from vte-0.16.0:
- Lots of bug fixes by Chris Wilson
- New feature: mouse scroll-wheel now feeds three arrow-up/down keys to the terminal if in the "alternate" mode. The alternate mode is used by apps like vim, less, emacs, screen, etc. This makes the scroll-wheel usable in a state that it was of no use before.
- Bugs fixed in this release:
Bug 426870 vte often passes NUL to functions requiring valid unichar
Bug 419644 Links do not get highlighted anymore
Bug 404757 URL matching doesn't work with PCRE
Bug 426541 crash on IRM escape code
Bug 424184 Make scroll wheel send Page Up/Down when it makes sense
Original patch by Shaun McCance and refined by Baris Cicek.
Bug 425767 vte_terminal_set_color_highlight should test for
NULL before _vte_debug_print
Bug 422385 vte appears at the top of the root window even when
packed at the bottom of it
